by spaker boehner. who am i to say? this much i will say kicking things off tonight. there is the makings of a deal here, an agreement in the political posturing and theater that is famous in washington. each side trying to very carefully dance off the cliff withou looking like it produced the disaster. there is, in the president' remarks today and boehner's yesterday, the inkling of an overture on each side, now, how much of one? with 52 days left to go, how real? rich edson in washington reading between the lines. what do you think, rich >> well, neil, there's plenty of space. ere's not that many details discussed. neither side says they want to box the other in the corner beginning negotiations. president obama, though, made it fairly clear he wants taxes to go up on wealthier taxpayers saying after the election, he was re-elected, democrats back in the senate, and the message in the campaign is wealthier people need to pay more. therefore, that's the approach he's taken. as for what happens in the3 negotiations and next year, we're still very, very early in this, and so we continue to
coming off a smashing re-election victory or speaker of the house john boehner and his tea party cohort determined to hold the line against higher tax rates on the well-to-right now both sides seem to be digging in. president obama used a campaign-style white house appearance today to declare that while he's willing to compromise with the republicans his bisque position has not changed. >> obama: as i said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine spending cuts with revenue that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrats independents, and a lot of republicans. >> eliot: mr. obama also said that he planned to meet with speaker of the house john boehner and other congressional leaders at the white house next year along with business and labor leaders. the president made it clear that even while talks were under way he wanted the house to move quickly to pass a middle class tax freeze
. john boehner, the speaker of the house, also 25uked about the fiscal cliff and hinted for compromise. you got to listen carefully to see the compromise that could be coming. let's listen. >> it's clear, there are a lot of loopholes in the tax code, both corporate and personal. it's also clear that there are all kinds of deductions, some of which make sense, others don't. everything, everything on the revenue side and the spending side has to be looked at. >> anyway, senator chuck schumer this morning suggested that the right wing might be more willing to accept compromise now. it's been helpful. let's watch. >> boehner wants to compromise, that's why he gave that speech. boehner's not a hard right guy, he's a mainstream conservative. i think he's going to help. the hard right is chastened in a lot of ways. >> in south carolina, a republican, jeff duncan, who quoted him as follows, when i look at the results of the election, congressman duncan says, it becomes clear to me that the house is now the last line of defense for preserving freedom in this country. the people of south carolin
house, but john boehner even said recently this is going to be long talks. is the first round of negotiations after the election but what is important to keep is mind is that john boehner has already back pedalled from where he was in 2011. he wasn't even willing to entertain the revenues he is willing to entertain in 2011. if you remember in 2011 when things looked like they were getting done the meetings were secret. >> jennifer: so in fact i want you to listen to a sound bite from house speaker john boehner this morning. >> the members of our majority understand how important it is to avert the fiscal cliff, and that's why i outlined a responsible path forward, paving the way for entitlement reform as well as tax reform with lower rates. >> jennifer: so -- it's very interesting to watch the dance and knowing that boehner has a tea party wing that he has to placate, and knowing he has moved all over the map, people have described him, really as being boxed in. >> he is boxed in, because he doesn't have the votes to pass a tax rate increase and the pre
that majority. i was encouraged to hear that speaker boehner agree that tax revenue has to be part of this equation. so i look forward to hearing his ideas when i see him next week. and let me make one final point that every american needs to hear. right now, if congress fails to come to an agreement on an overall deficit reduction package by the end of the year, everybody's taxes will automatically go up on january 1st. >> let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. let's move the story a little bit. the president is going to on a trip overseas but he's got to get involved deeply in negotiation. his top aides will be meeting with the republicans on the hill. >> in the coming days the president has invited the leaders of the house and the senate, to talk about these negotiations and begin basically laying out where each side stands. right now what we know is that the major sticking point is over this tax rate for the top earners. the president as you just heard saying the tax rates for those making $250,000 and up must increase. house republicans making it c
. president obama isad odds with speaker boehner. am they be stuck in the same preelection grid lock. joining us is senior advisor to senator harry reed reed. and spokes man for boehner. welcome and glad to center you on board. start off with the situation with the president speaking out and saying as far as he is concerned wealthy americans will pay higher taxes and that ended with his reelection and he believes that voters validated his effort to make it happen. speaker boehner said raising taxes are unacceptable. >> you are seeing the classic positions and everybody wants to make sure they speak for their constitients. and they want to make they are addressing the concerns. what we will see next week a call for the president for the leadership to go down to the white house. there is not that much time. we have a fiscal looming cliff at the end of the year. hopefully we can get both sides to come to the right. >> it is important for the president to not be intransient. the stock market took a beating. and that should send a strong signal that taking more taxes out of the economy for the ben
and house speaker john boehner both insisted they'd hold firm on whether or not to raise taxes on the wealthy. here are excerpts from the president's first comments on the subject since his victory tuesday night. he spoke to a crowd of supporters in the east room of the white house. >> as i said on tuesday night, the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. and in that spirit, i've invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. last year, i worked with democrats and republicans to cut a trillion dollars worth of spending that we just couldn't afford. i intend to work with both parties to do more, and that includes making reforms that will bring down the cost of health care so we can strengthen programs like medicaid and medicare for the long haul. i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments, while reducing our deficit by $4 trillion over the next decade. i want to be clear-- i'm not
romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together. i think they will be able to agree on it true tax reform sometime next year. i think they will get past the cliff. if he insists on raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the cornerstone of the president from message is we raise taxes on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged to repeal obamacare. these are the essential points of their candidacies. i think he can point to that. but at the same time, he has to
and speaker john boehner drawing different lines in the sand. will they break the stalemate? and if they don't -- that's coming up. >> greta: late today, david petraeus abruptly resigning after admitting to an extra-marital affair with his biographer. that's bad. but it gets worse. the resignation just days before general petraeus was set to testify at congressional hearings. coincidence? >> good evening, how are you? >> greta: i'm very well. congress pan, the affair, i mean, for the most part, i am trying to separate this out. it is a matter for general petraeus and his wife. but there is -- there is some parts of it that do have an implication. one is whether or not it's a security breach and that it should have been picked up and turned over to the house intel commits and whether or not that could be used as blackmail against him. your thought, sir? >> well, even someone as lowly as an assistant u.s. attorney has to undergo a background check with very invasive questions and you are expected to tell the truth and you are asked under penalty of perjury. so you can increase that expoinentia
boehner are telling different stories. will they break the stalemate? for over 60,000 california foster children, the holidays can be an especially difficult time. everything's different now. sometimes i feel all alone. christmas used to be my favorite. i just don't expect anything. what if santa can't find me? to help, sleep train is holding a secret santa toy drive. bring your gift to any sleep train, and help keep the spirit of the holidays alive. not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child. petraeus abruptly resigning after admitting to an extra-marital affair with his biographer. that's bad. but it gets worse. the resignation just days before general petraeus was set to testify at congressional hearings. coincidence? >> good evening, how are you? >> greta: i'm very well. congress pan, the affair, i mean, for the most part, i am trying to separate this out. it is a matter for general petraeus and his wife. but there is -- there is some parts of it that do have an implication. one is whether or not it's a security breach and that it should have been picked
john boehner said friday he would only be open to raising more money by closing tax loopholes. >> and i'm proposing that we avert the fiscal cliff together in a manner that ensures that 2013 is finally the year that our government comes to grips with the major problems that are facing us. >> everyone would be affected. payroll taxes would increase and bush era tax cuts would end. the unemploy wood see benefits run out and -- unemployed would see benefits run out and the congressional budget office is already warning of a 9.6% unemployment rate and double dip recession. >> very unusual for them to predict a recession if the fiscal cliff is not resolved. >> a solution may be sound say some in the president's largely ignored bipartisan debt commission. >> we've got the fiscal cliff bearing down on us. so why not look on simpson bowles although it's over two years later? >> and looming for our area, possible massive job cuts if automatic pentagon cuts are not stopped. at risk, 207,000 jobs in virginia, 114,000 jobs in maryland and 127,000 jobs in the district. tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. >>
. and they feel that they have hopefully the potential for a bargaining partner in speaker boehner and the opportunity to reach a deal because both sides do want to avoid the fiscal cliff. at the same time, the president and democratic team recognizes and believes they have leverage now. in the worst case, while it would be going off part of the cliff, if the bush tax cuts expire, then all the tax rates go u and everybody will be forced into a position to renegotiate the tax rates. so while they're not saying that from the white house, that does give the president a position of extreme negotiating force and he can really make some serious demands. they don't want that, they are not saying that that's where they're headed, but we all know that that's what stands out there as the threat and it's a serious forcing mechanism that gives the president a lot of leverage in these deals if speaker boehner won't come his way. >> but all of that politics. you know what's so interesting? there's all these politics being played but companies and people need the certainty of how much is going to
there was john boehner drawing the line not against tax increases, but increases in tax rates. >> listen, the problem with raising tax rates on the wealthiest americans is that more than half of them are small business owners. we know from ernst & young 700,000 jobs would be destroyed. we also know that it would slow down our economy. >> president obama from his part came into the east room. he also drew a line, but the line he drew was not insisting on higher tax rates but on higher tax revenues. >>> i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges, but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> so, larry, balance is the key for president obama, not necessarily increases in tax rates. signs of conciliation on both sides and late this afternoon the bipartisan policy center which has been pushing for a simpson bowles-type solution said they were encouraged by the flexibility shown on both side says. john harwood, appreciate it and let's get reaction, and we have republican whip senator joh
in the house. john boehner talked about the looming fiscal cliff, and like the president he also hinted at room for compromise. you have to listen carefully to see the compromise that could be coming. >> it's clear that there are a lot of special interest loopholes in the tax code, both corporate and personal. it's also clear that there are all kinds of deductions, some of which make sense. others don't. everything, everything on the revenue side and on the spending side has to be looked at. >> senator chuck schumer in new york this morning on msnbc suggested that the right wing might be more willing to accept compromise now. he's being hopeful. let's watch. >> boehner wants to compromise. that's why he gave that speech. you know, boehner is not a hard right guy. he's a mainstream conservative, and i think it's going to work because the hard right is chastened in a lot of ways. >> here is a republican who may not be quite in on what happens -- happening after the election, jeff duncan. when i look at the results of the election, congressman duncan says, it becomes clear the house is the last li
looking drab. >> paul: house speaker john boehner extends an olive branch, how much will they give and how will the white house respond? to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. customer erin swenson bought so, i'm happy. today. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home?

(together) happy. i love logistics. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> the american welcome have spoken and they've reelected president obama and reelected a majority in the house of representatives. a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that
boehner come to an agreement. because i believe anything they agree to is something that will pass the senate. so it's really the house and the presiden president. >> -- is very remote. i think we're more likely to postpone the spending cuts. i think that would be disastrous for the economy. and i think we're likely to let the tax cuts expire than come back in january and cut the taxes for at least 98% of americans. >> joining me now to map out a timeline, nbc white house correspondent mike viqueira who joins me from right there in the white house. so are you getting a sense of the schedule of these events? >> reporter: the schedule is pretty much up in the air. pretty remarkable that john yarmouth, house democrat from kentucky is basically saying let's go over the cliff because we're never going to come to an agreement. the trouble is that cliff if we go over it, the congress at budget office itself says over the next course of the year if those tax cuts kick in, more than $1 trillion in new added taxes to the american people. plus that sequester, that automatic cuts to defense an
. >> house speaker john boehner is also standing his ground, speaking ahead of the president friday. the speaker says he remains unwilling to raise taxes on upper income earners. >> everyone wants to get our economy moving again. everyone wants to get more americans back to work again. raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. >> joining me now, white house correspondent for the hill, amie parnes and "washington post" congressional reporter ed o'keefe. hi, you guys, good to see you both. let's talk fiscal cliff with you, starting with you, amie. the president says upper income americans are going to have to pay higher taxes. leader boehner essentially says no, that's a nonstarter. is all this just posturing and both have an idea where compromise is going to lie? >> i think they're trying to posture. but i think right now, president obama has the upper hand. i mean he's just won re-election. he's basically telling people, look, the american people elected me, because they want a stronger middle class. they want me to push what i hav
fearing that whatever they do to help him will actually help him get re-elected. john boehner has 230-plus members, but 230-plus members that were re-elected because they didn't compromise. i think what we're seeing is they set up their public positions and then they'll have to do the real work behind the scenes. they're posturing things they know they have to move off of. there's been some warning in terms of whether tax rates go up. the president talked about revenue which is important because if you sa have a come prea hencive tax field you can get the new money by getting rid of some the deductions and the loopholes. so they are finding ways an they might raise $250,000. there are ways you can find a deal here. >> how much of this is the short-term especially is everybody trying to figure out what they can get away with? i've been where one side or the other say let's get together. and they be they find out, oh, may we don't have to. >> both sides are trying to present themselves as the most reasonable guy in the room. >> that's exactly what boehner said. >> exactly. i'm quoting here.

about lots. some room for compromise from both the president and speaker boehner and the fact that they are going to sit down and meet suggests that they both want to get this done and you can sort of see where there might be room and as you suggested in your intro, where it remains to be seen, president obama, he didn't say it in his remarks but the white house has said that he would veto anything that doesn't include a tax rate hike on people making -- households making over $250,000 a year and that's the line that boehner seemses to be drawing. he won't do that. he wants to draw loopholes. can either side bend at this point? we'll find out. >> rita, you had a one on one with john boehner. we'll be seeing him again on monday. it sounds at least like his tone is definitely changed. take a listen. >> i remain optimistic that we'll be able to find common ground. i'm the most reasonable and responsible person here in washington. the president knows this. he knows that he and i can work together. the election is over. >> did you know that john boehner was the most reasonable pers
crisis visiting our nation so far. and while president obama and house speaker boehner say they're willing to compromise they seem to have drawn the line at the issue of raising taxes. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue and means asking the wealthiest americans to pay more in taxes how we did it when bill clinton was president and the only way we can afford to invest in job training and manufacturing. all the ingredients of a strong middle class and a strong economy. some said despite the risk we should let our nation's economy go off part of the fiscal cliff in january allowing the top two rates to rise and they believe that doing that will generate more revenue for the federal government. here is the problem with that, raising those rates on january 1st would, according to the independent firm, ernst & young, destroy 700,000 american jobs. >> kelly: all right. angela mcglowan is a political analyst and joining us today, ladies, what we can see right now, there has to be some compromise, but washington is once again fin
